Trophy unlocked: You played this game way too much

Trophy unlocked: You played this game way too much photo



[As originally posted on Japanator]

Over at Canned Dogs, they caught wind of a cute little trophy in the newly released RPG Agarest Zero: if you go ahead and complete all the guild quests and unlock all the titles for your character -- probably the equivalent of getting 100% completion in the game -- you unlock the hikkikomori trophy.

That sure is something to be proud of, right? A clear reminder that you spent way too much time working on this game. Hikkikomoris are people who just spend all their time in their rooms, often playing games and browsing the Internet -- to the point where they lose all ability to interact with people in a normal fashion. It's a serious problem, but also something that's regularly lampooned in the media. So, it's all in good humor.

I'd love to see more of these trophies and achievements make their way to the forefront, taking a jab at the people playing the game -- like Silent Hill having an "obsessive door checker" trophy. Any thoughts for tongue-in-cheek stuff like this? Games like Idolmaster immediately come to mind as something that's ripe for the picking.japan

Review: Pillars of Eternity

Pillars of Eternity is a sort of game which appeared unlikely to exist again in any meaningful way. Isometric, party-based role-playing games certainly seemed like the sort of thing people made, "back in the day," something t...more
